About Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness
Six years ago a U.S. special forces helicopter intervening in the Penamstan civil war fell from the sky. The U.S. Army Mad Dogs, who were in the same battleground, set out to save survivors of the crash. However, the special forces were already annihilated. The Mad Dogs, led by their captain Jason, were also forced to escape to survive.
However, in that place, Jason and his unit saw the supposedly dead special forces moving in strange ways…
Fast forward to 2006, a hacking incident occurs on a top-secret White House file. Four agents, including Leon S. Kennedy and Jason, are invited to the White House to investigate this incident. However, when the lights suddenly go out, they suddenly must battle a horde of mysterious zombies alongside a SWAT team.
Later, the top-secret file is found to be related to a biology laboratory in Shanghai. Leon and the other three agents are sent to uncover clues. As they head to Shanghai in a cutting-edge submarine, a swarm of rat-like Bio Organic Weapons (B.O.W.) suddenly attacks.
Across the globe in Penamstan, Terra Save staff member Claire Redfield encounters a strange image drawn by a nonverbal boy. Haunted by this drawing, which appears to depict a victim of viral infection, Claire starts her own investigation.
She eventually finds a terrifying experiment that was conducted during the Penamstan civil war. Leon and Claire draw closer to an unimaginable truth that all began in Penamstan. They also discover that a terror that can shatter peace is slowly approaching.
